Update: People have started to receive their shipment notifications. 

We’ve received word that iPad 3G’s are starting the shipment process. As Apple has promised, iPad Pre-Orders will arrive this Friday, April 30. Those who ordered after the deadline will have to wait until May 7. We haven’t heard about any iPad 3G’s shipping out the door as of yet, but being prepared for shipment is a start. We will be sure to update as soon as we hear anything new.
